The Chinese tech giant is still suffering huge losses and allegations due to the Trade War. The major reason that the Trump Administration gave on blacklisting Huawei was that it was accused of espionage. A Bloomberg’s report surfaced this evening, saying that Huawei employees were involved in around 10 projects with the Chinese Armed Forces Personnel. These projects are assumed to be focused on AI and radio communications. The company denies being aware of any such activity.
